LET ME START AGAIN.... we want to travel between the silver city hwy and the border. along the tracks that go though the stations. on my maps it doesn't say you need permission but i would assume they all go on station property. so do we need permission to travel on these tracks and if so, from who.
has anybody else gone up this way?

thanks in advance

I am not sure about the NSW side but the SA side will get you shot.
Especially on Frome downs.
If are allowed go up the NSW side, stay on it.

I've been on a few tracks south of Broken Hill next to the border but not as far south as Tarawi and these were OK at the time as far as permission (at least we didn't get shot at).

I've been desiring to go North from BH as you want to but..... never quite done it.

I didn't help much did I.

Regards Cam

Hi,
you do need permission from the station owners . All the propertires in this area are leasehold properties but you require the same permission as for any privately owned land.
Personally I doubt you will get it and you would need to contact each individual land holder.
Also as it is in the unincorporated area of the state - ie no local council, names and addresses won't be easy either.

If I read you right, you are talking about the track that goes through Theldarpa Station. You can camp there and they may be able to help re: tracks to the south.

We did most of that trip in August 06, passing through the stations is OK but you should notify them if you are going to camp for the night.
Was a great trip & we thoroughly enjoyed it.
I would be happy to discuss it with you at any time.

If you're travelling through station country, assume it is polite to ask.

Unless you're on a major road, which is often hard to tell by looking at a map.

Hi Simple
Been up that track a few times in the last couple of years.
No problems at all, you don't need to drop into every property for permission.
In fact when I first did it a number of years ago, one owner requested I don't bother calling in a disrupting daily chores, UNLESS you wish to camp.
Make sure you have a fit passenger - there are lots of gates. Theldarpa was vacant last november however you can still camp overnite for a donation. However if your going to Camerons Corner you will turn north before then. And you will miss a couple of very interesting towns ie Milparinka & Tibboburra - these are well worth visiting. Enjoy your trip up the back track
Cheers
Mike

Mike is so very right.

You will not need permission, but you will have lots of gates to open. The country side is so pretty and you will travel slower on that road giving you more time to take it in.

He is also right about Milparinka and Tib. They are both worth visiting as are the Mt Brown goldfields, so think about your trip and try to build them into it.

When you get to CC spend some time in the shop and ask how to get a $5 note stuck to the ceiling, its a lot of fun.

Have a good trip.

Normally I would say that would be simple. (As Bonz can tell you!!) Unfortunately you are running a bit late to catch me, I'm back in the big smoke.

Sorry about the simple thing, can't help going for the cheap pun.

You will be welcome at 238 anyway.

You will have a great trip, wish I could come.
